I have created a userConfig file to add MSGOTHIC font to FOP.

<fop version="1.0">
  <renderers>
    <renderer mime="application/pdf">
      <fonts>
        <!-- register a particular font -->

        <font metrics-url="file:/tmp/msmsgothic.xml" kerning="yes" 
              embed-file="file:/tmp/msgothic.ttf">
          <font-triplet name="MSGothic" style="normal" weight="normal"/> 
        </font>

        <font metrics-url="file:/tmp/msmsgothic.xml" kerning="yes" 
              embed-file="file:/tmp/msgothic.ttf">
          <font-triplet name="MSGothic" style="normal" weight="bold"/>  
        </font>
      </fonts>
    </renderer>                          
  </renderers>
</fop>    

Now I have set the config in my fop object :

FOUserAgent foUserAgent = fopFactory.newFOUserAgent();
fopFactory.setUserConfig(userConfigFile);

The font is getting registered as I can see in logs.

org.apache.fop.fonts.FontInfo: Registering: MSGothic,normal,400 under F15 org.apache.fop.fonts.FontInfo: Registering: MSGothic,normal,700 under F16

But it is not being found while lookup:

Substituting with "any,normal,400". This substitution happens and I am not able to see Japanese characters in PDF.
How can I use the font that I specified? Or is there any other way to display Japanese characters in PDF?
